The new offices and showrooms are located at the front of the existing factory to create a lively and corporate entrance space with extended reception facilities.
Designed in identical materials to the existing fabric the steel frame creates open plan offices allowing future flexibility for the international sales and marketing groups together with showroom and display areas.
A 16 metre clear span enables natural ventilation to be utilised in the open plan spaces and this is assisted by solar shading and perimeter services integrated within the structure.
BCAL were responsible for the project management, structural engineering and CDM Co-ordinator roles of this partnering project, which was completed from inception within 12 months.
